Noninvasive medical imaging has played an increasingly important role in clinical diagnosis and patient management. It acts eyes for physicians to look into details to get the disease information in anatomic, physiologic, and molecular level. The specific aim of this presentation is to introduce the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) principle and understand the functional difference among the imaging modalities, MRI, computed tomography (CT), and Positron Emitted Tomography (PET). Additionally, the recent progress of medical imaging development will be discussed.
